We flew up to Chiang Mai in the north of Thailand as everyone raves about it. Stayed at a neat hotel and could walk to markets and old part of city. It’s an OK place but we were not as enamored of it as others are. We preferred the south for many reasons and one of them was the food. Overall we did not enjoy the food up north as much. Just not as tasty and I had a very nasty bout of food poisoning.
But it’s fun to go elephant trekking and bamboo rafting up there.
We also had fun at the zoo and various animal park areas with tigers and snakes.
And I loved visiting Hmong villages
